    Fenrir423 got a reaction from Archlyte in Sniper rifles   
    Essentially, you'd be using a blaster rifle since they can fire into long range. I've played a sniper type character myself and found the Telescopic Optical Sight and Marksman Barrel weapon attachments really helpful to actually feel like a sniper. The former is in the F&D core book, the latter is in the Edge of the Empire and Age of Rebellion corebooks so depending on what books you have available, you may only be able to have the scope. As an alternative, the Seeker sourcebook has a similar barrel attachment but it's a restricted item, but the actual rarity is pretty low so it just depends on how generous the GM is feeling (again, that depends on the books available)
    Edit: I think the Seeker and/or Explorer sourcebooks have a couple of weapons that are specifically intended to be sniper rifles, but at least one of them is essentially the blaster rifle + attachment combo I listed, just already factored together and without the potential barrel mods.

    Yeah, Bounty Hunter has Assassin and Soldier has Sharpshooter.  A friend combined the two in a high XP game to quite devastating effect.

    It's basically GM's call what weapons are and aren't subject to Reflect, but even if it did work on ship scale damage, it would reduce to 4 ship scale damage which is 40 character scale damage which is still more than enough to wipe out anything human sized unless you're giving them an absurd wound threshold for some reason.

    Fenrir423 got a reaction from Kael in Character Progression - Seems flat   
    It's also perfectly okay to admit that this system might not be a fit for your group if heavy progression is something that everyone wants, and if Star Wars is what you want there's always Saga edition. Although, I will say that we just finished a roughly 250 XP game and then started over with starting characters and I can definitely tell there was a difference. It's a slow burn, but the advancement is certainly there. If one of your characters is a mechanic of some flavor, weapon and armor mods can get silly if you can manage a second or third one on the same attachment.

    Since it's still ultimately a social check in this case, even 100 successes won't make someone act against their own interests. It's kind of crappy, but sometimes you have to just say no. What you can do, though, is offer alternatives. No, you can't charm the Admiral into lending his Star Destroyer, but maybe you can convinced some of the security personnel that you have important business on the bridge and take it (just using your example as a springboard)

    Fenrir423 got a reaction from bradknowles in Universal Force Sensative Specializations and F&D Careers   
    I think you're thinking of the core books as supplements of each other rather than 3 different game lines that can be used together. F&D games focus specifically on Force users, so those characters need access to it from the beginning. They aren't specifically Jedi trees because the characters (barring occasional backstories of Padawans surviving Order 66) aren't strictly Jedi. In the other lines, the Force plays as much of a role as the characters and plot dictate. A character taking FS Emergent/Exile may well have been Force Sensitive all along (owing their unusual success to luck or exceptional skill) but once they take the specialization, the Force becomes a mechanically and narratively relevant aspect of the character. That the Universal trees synergize with F&D characters is incidental to them being good, well rounded trees.

    Talents are what you're looking for for your personal defense, things like Dodge, Side Step, etc. Or in the case of Force and Destiny/Force Sensitives in general the Sense power.

    Also, isn't the crit what killed him here? 142 is "Dies on the end of next round" isn't it? So he could have had all the soak in the world, but if even only a point got through the enemy would have been dead.

    Honestly, the majority of the bad reviews I've heard for Aftermath involve either A) Wendig's writing style which, having read it I can understand, but I happened to like it (find a sample chapter somewhere and you'll know very quickly if it's for you or not) or B) people being pissed that there are gay characters in the book which is just people being stupid.
